Reynold Ouzo pro seem to be good choise then...


the difference between a great TT frame and a good one is very small

I would pick the frame that provides me a better selection of forks - more impact than frame.

What fork you would pick?

I would Easton EC90 Aero or Reynold Ouzo Pro Aero. Both are made 1" also.

Any ideas what TT-frame would be equal to Walser or Trek TT? Stiff one...?

What about a Cervélo P3? I belive it had a good test in "Tour" some time ago. It is obviously very aerodynamic and stiff enough.

From Cervelo www-site:

"At the same time the frame provides excellent bottom bracket stiffness (the highest of any TT/tri frame tested by TOUR, Europe's largest bike magazine) "

Looks stiff enought!

Cervelo www-site has too little info about it, color on frame only in 2004' (CSC?),weight for fork/frame, and if size 58cm is my size? is wild quess.

Where to buy in Europe?

That may be great but main reason agains it is that it is ugly...I know it stupid but Walser looks nice! But needs 1300€ more with desent fork...and Chris King head set!

Thanks anyway!

Any more?

It looks fine!

Any clue how much old or SL P3 weights? It would be easy pick when fork should do.

Then add:

-HED aero bar with brake levers
-75mm Syntace F99 stem
-Selle San Marco Aspide Trigel seat (190g?)
-Lightweight disk with 11-21 10s Record cassette
-Lightweight 16 spoke (or HED H3C if too much money around...adds 170g)
-Vittoria Corsa Evo KS tubulars
-Campa Or D-A group set, I have TT D-A set now but else bikes are with Campa...Record der's,Chorus BB,Centaur brakes and cranks would be nice. 54 or 55/44 rings.
-Time Impact mag ti pedals
-Polar Speed/Cadense instrumentation

Cervelo wrote to me:

The P3 SL Is 80 grams lighter then our standard P3 which weighs
1540grams for a 56cm frame. The SL is still has a 1" head tube.
I do not have the individual weights of the chord fork available at this
time, it is an aluminum steerer fork with carbon legs.
We have yet to release the colors for the 2005 line up, please check out
web site shortly for updates.

So it pretty light being stiff.
